30 Message   from   Martin   Glynn
This is my last column as President of the Alumni
Association, and I can't believe the year has gone so
quickly. We are pleased to have made positive strides
this year to reposition the Association to fit closer to the university's direction and objectives.
What this means in practical
terms is that we will work closely
with other university units to help coordinate alumni/faculty relations and
to organize branch activities here and
abroad in our role as ambassadors
for UBC. We recently sponsored
branch events in London, UK; San
Diego; Victoria and Tokyo. We will
enhance this friendraising function
with new programs such as the
Campus Branch Connector and the Mentor Program.
We will continue to deliver programs such as our successful
After the BA... and After the BSc... presentations, our reunions
and our divisions' programs and ail our other offerings (this
magazine, for instance), in our usual, high-quality manner.
Ultimately, our goal is to give you and the university programs that refocus our resources in the most cost-effective way.
And, perhaps most satisfying, the changes we have made to our
program delivery have been done without compromising our
independence.
As we begin the next phase of our relationship with the
university, I am pleased to welcome Bob Lee to UBC as our new
Chancellor. He has had a long relationship with this university as
a supporter and as a member of the Board of Governors. I would
also like to thank out-going Chancellor Les Peterson for his
support of the university and the Alumni Association.
I am also pleased that the provincial government and UBC
are now talking constructively about budget issues and about
capital matching commitments relating to the World of Opportunity campaign. This is a positive step away from the public
acrimony that existed in the late fall.
My year as President of this Association has been extremely
satisfying. I have had the opportunity to work with a competent,
involved group of people on our Board of Directors, and I thank
them for their dedication to the Association and to our members.
It has also been a pleasure to work with Deborah Apps and her
staff. Without close volunteer/staff involvement, we would not
have been able to work through this period of refocusing so
successfully. Their help has been immeasurable.
I would like to extend my thanks to those of you who
offered your support during the past few years. We will continue
to offer you the very best services we can to keep you in touch
with UBC.

Message   from   David   Strangway
What is the value of a university to its community?
As thinking men and women, as members of our
communities and as taxpayers, it is important that we
examine the roles of our public institutions to determine their
worth and to see how they affect our
lives. UBC and our other universities
are no exception: are they performing a worthwhile function in our
society, and do they deserve our
continued support?
These questions are particularly
cogent in the current period of
budgetary restraint, high unemployment and economic instability. We
spend large sums on higher education: is this money well spent?
In the case of UBC, the answer is an emphatic "yes."
UBC's relationship to British Columbia has a 77-year history.
We have produced many of the doctors, engineers, dentists,
lawyers, teachers and other professionals who have settled in BC.
Of the 100,000 living graduates of UBC, more than 80,000 reside
here. As well, UBC researchers and grads have found and developed ore bodies, developed and sustained forest resources,
solved problems of waste disposal, dealt with environmental
issues and have been involved in a myriad of other activities
designed to maintain our resource industries.
But that's only part of it: UBC also creates jobs. We attract
$120 million annually in research grants, most of which comes
from outside the province. Much of that money goes into hiring
people - grad students, technicians and research colleagues - who
live and work in this community. In addition, UBC employs over
13,000 full- and part-time faculty and staff, all of whom contribute directly to our economy.
Research at UBC has another dividend: knowledge-based
industries are attracted to communities with many trained,
talented people to draw on for employees, and with universities
of UBC's calibre for research and development. It becomes a
circle: the better we do with our R and D, the better we do at
creating jobs. Companies from around the world look at BC as an
ideal place to establish industries because of UBC, our talent
pool, and our proximity to the Asian and the North American
markets. And, as a direct result of our work, more than 80 UBC
spin-off companies currently do business in BC, generating over
$600 million annually.
UBC will maintain its role as one of the principal sources of
job creation in BC, and we will continue to seek support from
industry, government and alumni to carry out this aspect of our
mission. As an agent of economic health, UBC has had and will
continue to have a profound effect on British Columbia.

New   Alumni
Connections
Our new program, New
Alumni Connections, will help
keep recent and graduating
students actively involved with
UBC and the Association. We
will offer events and programs
of interest to those who have
graduated within the past 10
years.
The next event will be Job
Search: The Inside Track on
April 27 at Cecil Green Park
starting at 7:00 pm. Speaker
Gordon Thorn BCom'56,
BEd'71 will give advice on how
to conduct an effective job
search. All are welcome.
Volunteers are needed as well

events. Get involved! Please
RSVP 822-3313.
Scholarships
&    Bursaries
Every year we award scholarships and bursaries worth over
$100,000. On February 18, we
held a reception to honour this
year's recipients. K.D.
Srivastava, VP, Student and
Academic Services, presented
the certificates. Students met
with reps of the alumni
divisions that sponsor awards.
The Association's major
award is the Norman A.M.
MacKenzie Alumni Scholarship,
named in honour of UBC's
president from 1944-62. In
1992, 29 BC Grade 12 students were awarded $2,000
each. Committees in 27
regions chose from hundreds
of applicants on the basis of
high scholastic achievement,
outstanding personal qualities
and distinction through school
and community service.
We sponsor many other
scholarship and bursary
programs through the generous donations of alumni. A
number of awards are made
possible by an endowment
created jointly by the Association, the Vancouver Foundation
and the university.
Thanks to Louise Grant
BEd'64, chair of the Scholarship and Bursary Committee,
and her volunteers for their
support through the years.
Anyone interested in more
information should contact
UBC's Awards and Financial Aid
Office, 822-5111.
Walter   Gage
Work is underway on a biography of former UBC president
and "dean of everything,"
Walter Gage. Colleagues and
former students should send
memories of Gage to Helen
Borrell, Apt. 204, 30 East 10th
Ave., Vancouver, B.C. V5T 4C8.
Special
Reunion
On December 5, Dental
Hygiene diploma grads ('70-
'86) met for a combined
reunion and continuing ed
course. Special guests were
Joan Voris, former diploma
completion program director,
and Bonne Craig, the current
director.
Mentor
Program
About 60 students attended an
orientation session for the
Mentor Program on February 3.
The Mentor Program, which
matches students with grads in
their degree area, was a pilot
project last year. We have now
formed a partnership with the
recently opened UBC Placement
Services Office. Students
learned about the program and
registered to be matched with
an alumnus. Currently, we have
many students eager to meet
a mentor. Like to be a mentor?
See box, right.
Someone would like a
word with you
... or perhaps a few words,
a phone call or a chance
to meet over lunch. Remember when you were
approaching graduation
and had a lot of questions
about career options? A
studentcould benefit from
talking to you. Even a few
hours of your time could
make a big difference to
someone. Please consider
becoming a mentor.
Croquet    Anyone?
Alumni are invited to the 6th Annual President's Croquet Classic
to be held June 23 at David Strangway's house. Dress up in Olde
England garb, sip wine, chat amiably under the sun and bash the
heck out of little striped balls. Want to join the party? Get an
alumni team together and cut a bold swath across the President's
lawn. Call Joan King at 822-5414 for information.

Joan (Faulkner) Atkinson
BA(Hons)'78 gave birth to
triplets Emily, Claire and
Kaitlin three years ago. Now
Kaitlin is fighting for her life.
She must receive a double
heart-lung transplant. Kaitlin's
condition, idiopathic pulmonary
hypertension, results in a
stiffening of the lungs, which
prevents oxygen from getting
into the blood stream.
Kaitlin is on a waiting list
for the operation in a hospital
in Pittsburgh, since this
operation is not available here.
Kaitlin's medical expenses
are being covered by the OHIP,
but her family's accommodation and living expenses are
not. Kaitlin will remain in
Pittsburgh for three months
after the operation and costs
are estimated at $60,000. A
fund has been set up to help
with the family's expenses.

Statement:
The University of British Columbia
was, for many years, the only
university in the province. During
that period, UBC was the university.
I could identify myself on the
telphone as "calling from the
university." Today this is, of
course, no longer possible.
Members of the BC community,
whether UBC graduates or not, saw
UBC as their university. If called
upon to support some aspect of
university activities, it was to
support UBC. This is no longer the
situation, and university support
from the community at large is
divided among many instititions
and may be given to a particular
institution for a variety of pragmatic reasons. As a consequence,
UBC alumni have a considerably
more important role to play than
they did previously in support of
our university. In fact, we should
consider that we have many roles—
as many roles as are encompassed
in our visions of what UBC is and
should be.

Statement:
I have grown up with UBC as part
of my "neighbourhood." As a
youngster participating in community programs at the university, as
a high school student using the
library resources and rowing with
the UBC/VRC squad (running steps
in the Thunderbird stadium or
rowing with the other crews in Coal
Harbour), as a student in two
different faculties and now as an
alumna participating in the
University Athletic Council. I
appreciate the opportunities I've
had through my association with
the university and realize those
opportunities have come not only
through my attending UBC, but
also from UBC's commitment to the
community. I think it is a relationship which should be encouraged
wherever feasible, and the Alumni
Association can and does have an
important part to play in doing so.
I would be happy if I could help.

UBC Alumni Chronicle, Spring 1993        11 The Left Hand of Research
by Lynn Melcombe
Humans, alone in the
animal kingdom, are
sided: we not only function
better with one hand, but
with the corresponding foot,
eye and ear as well. Twenty
years ago, anomalies like this
launched Coren on a research
journey which has created a
whirlwind of controversy and
set him down in the eye of a
storm.
It turned out, says Coren,
that "lefthandedness is a
Stanley Coren, below. The
cowboy hat comes from his
days in the US army when he
served with a group of
Oklahomans. Above right,
Coren shows how awkward and
dangerous a handsaw can be
for the lefthander. His next
project is a book about
intelligence in dogs. Dogs and
cats are "pawed" like humans,
Coren says, but the right/left
split in about 50/50. Photos by
Pat Higinbotham.
marker, or sign, for a bunch
of differences," on which he
has based his book The Left-
Hander Syndrome.
Lefthandedness, reduced
immune function and gender
dysphoria all appear related
to a pathological occurrence
during fetal development or
birth.
"When most people hear
the word 'pathology,'" says
Coren, "they think, 'That guy
just said I'm brain damaged.'" After centuries of
persecution as agents of the
devil, and retraining efforts
that were at best, ineffective
and at worst, abusive, it's
little wonder lefthanders
shun the word 'pathological.'
Another of Coren's
findings - that lefthanders
have shorter lifespans -
shows up strikingly in
surveys conducted throughout this century. Although 15
per cent of infants are born
lefthanded, by age 20 a third
of those have died. By 50,
they've decreased to 5 per
cent of the population, and
by 80, fewer than 1 per cent
survive. A 1991 investigation
of death records revealed
that lefthanders died seven
to eight years younger than
righthanders, and their
deaths were five times more
often related to accidental
injuries.
"Our environment eats
lefthanders," says Coren,
because it's "set up for the
safety and convenience of
righthanders." Right-access
controls and safety switches
on industrial machinery, for
example, force lefthanded
operators to assume uncomfortable positions to accommodate the awkwardness of
using their right hands.
Auto safety is another
concern. A lefthander's reflex
action is opposite-to-ideal,
given that cars are designed
for the righthanded majority.
But after data from the 1991
death record study were
released, the UBC researcher
was deluged with hate mail
and threatening phone calls
from lefthanders fearing
insurance increases.
Coren responds that
reflexes can be countered.
"When a car goes into a skid,
the driver's first response is
to steer out of it," he says.
Just as any driver can be
trained to take the safer
course of steering into the
skid, lefthanded drivers can
learn to counter their reflexes, reduce accidents and
save lives.
Another factor in reduced longevity - immune
function - seems to be biased
against lefthanders. Coren's
studies, confirmed by other
researchers, show that
lefthanders suffer more often
from, among other things,
allergies, asthma, eczema,
juvenile onset diabetes,
Crohn's Disease and even
AIDS.
In data collected by
Diane Halpern, Coren's
University of California
associate in the 1991 death
record study, lefthanders
composed significantly more
than 10 per cent of the
population testing HIV
positive, and having contracted the lethal virus,
lefthanded subjects tended
to deteriorate more quickly.
Coren's interest in
publicizing immune function
data is not to single
lefthanders out, but to alert
general medical practitioners
that handedness may be a
factor in diagnosis and
treatment. "If I was the
researcher who discovered
black people are more
susceptible to sickle cell
anaemia" he says, "I would be
irresponsible not to release
that information."
In a study that was "not
on the main path" of Coren's
investigations, he and Diane
Watson of Vancouver General
Hospital's Gender Dysphoria
Clinic discovered that there
were three times as many
lefthanders in a group of
transsexuals than in a control
group of non-transsexuals.
(Gender dysphoria, explains
Coren, refers to anyone who
is "not gender typed according to their biological gender
type.") Corroborating studies
show that lefthanders make
up 35-45 per cent of gay and
lesbian populations, substantiating Coren's belief that a
syndrome of differences,
including lefthandedness,
may be caused by fetal
pathology.
Coren explains that when
trauma occurs during pregnancy and birth, the body
may under- or over-release
the male hormone,
testosterone, or the female
1 2       UBC Alumni Chronicle, Spring 1993 UBC psychology professor
Stanley Coren
ooks at medicine, machinery
and the mark of the devil
hormone, progesterone. An
infant experiencing trauma in
utero or at birth may be
exposed to large amounts of
the opposite gender hormone, or small amounts of
the appropriate one. Either
situation may result in
lefthandedness, gender
dysphoria, reduced immune
function or other symptoms
ranging from slower maturation to sleep disruptions.
This theory is supported
by diverse data: there is a
higher rate of lefthandedness
among twins, for whom fetal
development and birth are
always more stressful;
neonatal lefthandedness
increases with maternal age,
which is often a factor in
high risk pregnancies; and
lefthanded newborns require
resuscitation two or three
times as often as righthanded
babies.
The potential for controversy over links between fetal
pathology, gender dysphoria
and lefthandedness is clear
on two fronts. First, some
heterosexual lefthanders may
fear the ramifications of false
labeling. Coren's research
does not mean, he stresses,
that heterosexual lefthanders
are more likely to manifest
homosexuality as time goes
on. It means that
lefthandedness and gender
dysphoria are two of a host
of consequences which may
appear singly or in combination as a result of a traumatic
event at birth.
Says the psychologist,
"There is a subtle difference,
a difference of emphasis,
between saying, 'A lefthander
is more likely to be homosexual,' and There are more
lefthanders among the
homosexual population.'"
Second, as to concerns
regarding the way research
on pathological origins could
be used against homosexuals,
Coren says increasing evidence indicates that sexual
orientation is neither disease
nor lifestyle choice, but a
physiological fact. "To insist
that a person change what he
or she does naturally," he
says, "is equivalent to telling
my grey dog to become
white."
Despite his explanations,
Coren's findings are so
controversial that, last
February, he was invited to a
Galveston, Texas symposium
organized to discredit his
theories, he says. But while
lefthanders' reactions may be
justifiable, they do not shake
Coren's drive for change.
The psychologist wants
engineers and politicians to
legislate and design improved
accessibility in everything
from industrial equipment to
cars. He'd like substance
abuse experts to know that
more lefthanders become
alcoholic, and lefthanded
alcoholics in recovery relapse
more often. He wants
handedness recorded in
accident reports to substantiate and facilitate training of
lefthanded drivers. He's not
interested in singling out
lefthanders for persecution,
but in improving their lives.
His wish list is being
realized. Air traffic control
panels are being re-designed
with "hot switches" accessible to both hands. And
Statistics Canada recently
agreed to include a
handedness item in their next
survey. It's not everything,
Coren says, but "it's a start."
Given the myths and
misconceptions that still
abound, however, the controversy is not surprising.
Recently, a Vancouver woman
contacted Coren because the
elderly nun teaching her six
year old was taping his left
hand closed. With evidence
that retraining can cause
lifelong stress disturbances,
Coren contacted the school.
The principal admitted the
teacher was "old-fashioned,"
but cited scriptural support
indicting lefthandedness as a
mark of the devil.
The notion that people
still endorse such archaic
ideas seems amusing. But
from elevated accident rates
and reduced longevity to
fears of institutionalized
persecution, the "lefthander
syndrome" is clearly no joke.

Forestry
Donna Goss
BSF'90 was appointed
recently as coordinator
of student services for
UBC's Faculty of Forestry. She is responsible for recruitment, admissions, student advising, job placement
and public relations.
She has visited several
high schools and colleges in the last
few months. Partly as a result of
these efforts, enrolment figures have
increased from 285 in 1991/92 to
333 in 1992/93.
Donnaspends much of her time
working with employers (often forestry alumni) who require full-time
summeremployees. The employment
rate for UBC's forestry grads currently averages 90 per cent.
In November, the faculty hosted
a career evening for forestry under
graduates, which attracted over 200 students and alumni.
Strong ties with alumni
are one of the aims of
this annual event.
Donna will expand
her visits to high
schools and colleges,
focusing in particular
on the new natural resources conservation program. The
faculty is also committed to ensuring that First Nations students have
access to current information on admission pathways and requirements
for the forestry degree programs.
Visits will include recruiting efforts
at high schools and colleges with
significant First Nations populations.

Techniques originally applied
at UBC's two archaeological
projects in Greece have been used
at an Indian site near the confluence ofthe Harrison and Fraser
rivers in BC. In Greece, Hector
Williams, UBC's director of projects
in Greece, and Roderick Miller, a
PhD student in classical archaeology, discovered the remains of a
4th century B.C. city at Stymphalos
and a late Classical-Hellenistic
Sanctuary of Demeter and a
medieval church at Mytilene.
They were invited by Michael
Blake ofthe department of
Anthropology to use their proton
magnetometermin BC to survey a
large burial mound and a terrace
containing house remains. This
may be the first use of the
technique at a prehistoric site in
BC.
The data were processed by
PhD student Guy Cross, who is
doing the first PhD in Geophysics
and Archaeology at UBC. It revealed
significant anomalies that may be
the remains of ancient hearths and

The Faculty of Pharmaceutical
Sciences at UBC is on the verge of
graduating its first six Doctors of
Pharmacy (PharmD). The PharmD program, started in 1991, is the first of
its kind in Canada. Previously, Canadian pharmacy graduates wishing to
do post-graduate work had to go to
the US to receive PharmD training or
stay in Canada to pursue one-year
residencies and traditional masters
and PhD degrees. UBC's PharmD program is two years of intensive training. The first year is spent in the
classroom and the second at a wide
variety of hospital sites for clinical
rotations. The students work closely
with patients and other members of
health care teams to prevent, identify
and resolve patient-specific drug-related problems. It is expected that
the graduates of the PharmD program will find employment mainly in
teaching hospitals and academia.

Each summer third and fourth
year dental students participate in
the Summer Dental Clinic at the
university and in private dental
offices. Since 1974 the provincial
government has funded a program
that brings about 1,000 school-
aged children from the Greater
Vancouver area to the faculty clinic
for treatment. These children are
identified by the Ministry of Health
as requiring dental care and
financial assistance. The grant
provides transportation for the
children, consumable supplies and
a small stipend for third-year
students. The clinic operates for
six weeks under the supervision of
registered dentists and delivers an
estimated value of $200,000 in
dental services. It helps the
children and is an invaluable
learning opportunity for the dental
students.
Another exciting program is
available for the incoming fourth-
year students. Private dental
practitioners who are willing to be
supervisors and mentors are paired
with senior dental students. In their
offices, students have the chance
to provide a limited range of
patient treatment and enjoy a
"hands on" experience while
observing the management of a
dental practice. Feedback to the
faculty includes insights for
curriculum evaluation and modification. Both students and professionals regard this as a "two way
street" which is a highly worthwhile
and rewarding program.

Laurier, which was attended by
many alumni who included
graduates from 1944 to 1991. Dean
Goldberg believes that it is critical
to maintain a strong network with
our alumni in order to continue to
develop strong relationships with
the business, government and
labour communities.
The faculty is also reaching
out into these communities to
share the results of ongoing
research into business issues.
Research bureaus within the faculty
and the executive programs division
use breakfast meetings as a vehicle
to accomplish this goal. Several
such meetings are planned in
conjunction with the Institute of
Chartered Accountants of BC, the
Bureau of Asset Management and
the Canadian Real Estate Research
Bureau.
The faculty has recently
devoted considerable resources
toward fostering teaching excellence
via projects to improve teaching,
facilities and programs, including a
revamping of the BCom program,
the establishment of a committee
to review our MBA program and
recommend its redesign, the
expansion and improvement of our
computing facilities and enhancement of our audio visual department. Several professional development programs such as a teaching
seminar series and a guide listing
teaching resources are also
available to faculty members and
instructors.
Engineering
Demand for engineering programs at UBC continues to be strong,
with the required grade-point average (GPA) for admission rising each
year. In 1992/93, there were over 2,000 applications for 450 places in
first-year engineering. For the 350 students admitted directly from high-
school, the minimum GPA required was 3.19. This is calculated from
grades in mathematics, physics, chemistry and English in Grades 11 and
12. Over 50 students were admitted with a 4.0 GPA in these subjects.
The other 100 places are filled by transfers from the faculty of science,
community colleges and other post-secondary institutions. Women make
up about 20 per cent of this class, while the percentage of women
students in the faculty as a whole is approximately 15 per cent.

Graduate Studies
Richard Ericson, currently director of the Centre of Criminology at the
University of Toronto, has been appointed principal of UBC's innovative
new residential graduate college, Green College.
Ericson received a BA in social sciences from the University of Guelph
in 1969, and a PhD from the Institute of Criminology at Cambridge in 1974.
He began teaching criminology and sociology at the University of Toronto
the same year. His research, a model of the sort of interdisciplinary
scholarship that Green College will foster, examines theories of knowledge
and society, science and technology in legal contexts and the representation
of crime, law and justice in the mass media. Dr. Ericson is a fellow of the
Royal Society of Canada, and in 1991 he received a DLitt from the University of Cambridge for co-authoring Visualizing Deviance (1987), Negotiating Control (1989) and Representing Order (1991), a trilogy regarded as a
landmark in contemporary criminology. In addition to his role in Green
College in the Faculty of Graduate Studies, he will be cross-appointed to
both the Faculty of Law and the Department of Anthropology and Sociology
in the Faculty of Arts.

l.i mi Smith, Dean of Law
Born in Calgary. Attended TJ of C and completed a degree in Honours Philosophy.
Graduated from UBC Faculty of Lawin 1973. Found philosophy a good background for
study of law because of emphasis on use of logical argument.

sex discrimination under the Canadian Bill of Rights. Ten years later (1988), came back
to the court with a similar case representing the Women's Legal Education and Action
Fund (LEAF). The Court overruled its own previous decision, deciding that, under
human rights legislation, pregnancy discrimination is sex discrimination and that
pregnant women could not be excluded because of their pregnancy from employee
disabilityplans.

UBC Alumni Chronicle, Spring  1993
It was not really the controversial,
provocative answer I wanted to hear. I had
asked Lynn Smith how she felt about
being appointed the first woman dean of
law at UBC.
"Well, I think the time had come," she
said, simply.
Smith's position is an influential one.
Since July 1990, she has been head of
Canada's second largest law faculty, a
faculty that has been in existence for
almost 50 years and enjoys prestige
across Canada.
Her down-to-earth attitude is understandable considering the faculty has
actively supported feminist research and
writing over the past decade. There are
now 11 women on faculty (including two
visiting professors) out of approximately
45 faculty members, and one male faculty
member focuses on feminist perspectives
in his research and writing. The UBC Law
Faculty Women's Caucus, with its 40
student members, has a strong voice,
regularly organizing seminars and activities for the entire law school community.
Smith pointed out that the faculty is
also known for its research and influence
in many other areas of law (see page 19),
including corporate and commercial law,
Asian studies and criminal law. Because
the faculty is so large, it's able to offer
courses in almost every type of law.
Nevertheless, Smith's appointment
and her perspective has changed the
flavour and atmosphere of the law faculty.
"Our female students find it helpful
to have more women faculty," Smith says.
"It's important for them to see women
doing everything within the legal profession, as judges, as law professors, whatever. Role models aside, it's useful for
students to have faculty members to talk
to about these issues."
Professor Karin Mickelson, a specialist
in international environmental law, has
been on faculty for four years. She received her LLB from UBC and her LLM leLAWatUI
from Columbia. She recalls that when she
graduated from UBC there were only four
women on faculty and agrees that the
atmosphere has changed since then.
"There is strength in numbers. Just
knowing there are a number of other
women on faculty gives you a sense of
security, a feeling of belonging."
Feminist scholarship is now an
important part of the faculty's work.
Mickelson says this gives women students
the sense that their concerns and their
inter ests are being taken into account.
"Also, the way that women faculty
approach teaching may well be different.
A lot of us are concerned with creating a
safe, comfortable environment in the
classroom. This contrasts with the idea
many people have of a law classroom
where you come in and get beaten into the
legal mould."
"I'm not sure that stereotyped
classroom really exists," she adds, "but
you would be amazed how many first-year
students expect to come in here and see
Kingsfield from The Paper Chase. When
they see a young woman standing in front
of the class, they think, 'Hmm. Where's the
bow-tie. Where's the grey hair?'"
It's often the students, not the faculty,
who resist new ideas and perspectives.
Mickelson finds both men and women on
faculty are supportive of her. "I have pretty
warm feelings about the faculty generally.
It's a good place to work."
Do male faculty have reservations
about these new ideas? "I think most
realize it has changed the law faculty,"
Mickelson says. "Maybe not all of them are
thrilled with the changes but most accept
them and see them as long overdue."
One of this year's changes is the new
chair in Women and the Law. Visiting
professor Susan Boyd from Carleton
University occupies the chair and, so far,
reviews have been more than positive. One
faculty member described Boyd as, "a
wonderful person, a very good academic
and the official nurtur er of the women on
faculty."
The existence of the chair underlines
the importance of feminist legal scholarship
and the commitment that the faculty has to
this area of study. Boyd says, "It adds
credibility to feminist studies."
She says several male students have
sought her advice on research into f eminist
studies, so the chair benefits both men and
women law students. She finds that some
male students do resist the emphasis on that
perspective at first, but the course opened
their eyes about issues facing women —
marriage breakdown, custody disputes and
other situations.
"It's a mixed reaction. Some students
are reluctant. It's too threatening, for
whatever reason. The most one can hope for
is to get men and women to ask slightly
different questions when they're coming to a
particular subject."
"I would love to see each professor,
whether they feel they share the perspective or not, give credibility to feminist
work by informing students that such
work exists, and give their students
examples of such work to read."
For the third year now, the faculty has
offered a compulsory first-year course,
Perspectives on the Law, which features
alternatives to the traditional view of the
law.
Students choose three units out of the
six offered. They include Feminist Perspectives and the Law, Philosophy and Law,
Retrieving Realities (a historical perspective), Social Theory (sociological perspective), Law and Economics and Western
Ideas of Law.
Unfortunately, according to Women's
Caucus member Laura Spitz, there is a
tendency on the part of some students to
treat this course as less important than
other courses.
Perspectives on the Law is important,
Spitz says, because practicing lawyers deal
with clients fromboth sexes, all classes and
all races. "Paying attention to some of the
issues that affect people coming to you is
absolutely crucial to your job."
Anumber of prof essors note the
tendency of students to resist looking at
different interpretations of the law and to
regard it as objective and neutral. This may
be in part because of the mystique the
profession has built up around itself.
Professor Mickelson feels that some
people come to law school looking for a
degree of certainty and predictability.
"When you tell them that 'reality' and
'justice' might just be constructs, and that
they will vary according to the times, or
according to the perspectives of the actors in
a legal dispute, or because of the world view
of the judge, or all these things, they get
disturbed."
One place in the law faculty where
students soon see the shortcomings of the
law is at the UBC legal clinic. Here they
work for real people on real cases that may
not be as clear-cut as the ones presented in
law class.
Judy Mosoff, an assistant professor who
teaches at the clinic, says, "It's hard to
appreciate until you're in the centre of it,
how a system said to be objective and
neutral doesn't work that way."
She cites as an example the situation in
which a man assaults his wife. The law
offers as a solution that the wife bring
criminal charges against her husband.

17 FACULTY    OF    LAW
Establishing New Precedents
RESEARCH I^ THE LAW AT IB(
One of the best floats at UBC's annual
Homecoming Parade is the one
launched by law students. They dress
in legal robes and chase after an ambulance, its siren blaring, and hand out their
cards to the crowds. It is a wry comment
on the profession, and a strong statement
that while studying the law is a serious
enterprise, future lawyers are not without
a sense of humour.
Of course, what it doesn 't say about
UBC's Faculty of Law is the most interesting part. Many lay people have an image of
law school as an episode of the Paper
Chase where students stay up all night to
sort through thick volumes to find a tiny
kernel of precedent that will save an
innocent client. The fact is, that while the
law school produces professionals in
virtually every area of the law, research is
a large part of the faculty's work.
As in any large faculty (ours is the
2nd largest common law faculty in the
country), academics are intensely interested in advancing the base of knowledge.
The men and women who work in the Law
faculty are no exception.
Criminal law is a major focus of
research. What impact does the Charter
have on criminal law? How does criminal
law affect First Nations culture? What is
international crime, and do crimes against
the environment, for instance, fall under
this definition? Academics, lawyers,
judges, policy analysts and others are all
involved in seeking answers to these and a
host of other questions. Work includes the
relationship of criminal law to people with
mental disabilities, victims of sexual
assault, prison inmates and young offenders.
The faculty has developed links with
SFU's School of Criminology to develop the
interdisciplinary nature of this work, and
has created the International Centre for
Criminal Law Reform and Criminal Justice
Policy with SFU and the Society for the
Reform of Criminal Law.
The Asian Law Program is another
important area of research. One project
focuses on the regional legal mechanisms
of marine policies in various states of the
South China Sea, with an eye to developing
cooperative policies in the environment,
marine research, shipping and defence.
This project involves both Canadian and
Asian researchers. Another project
analyses Chinese security markets and
implications for foreign investment in
Canada, and yet another is looking at the
legal culture in Chinese communities in
Asia and North America.
The faculty has earned an international reputation for its innovative research into law and artificial intelligence.
Researchers are designing software that
will sort cases based on the particular set
of rules or legal concepts the judge used
to decide the outcome. This research may
result in the ability to predict case outcomes based on the variables judges use
to make their decisions, and will give
scholars a better idea of how judicial
decisions are made.
Socio-legal research is also expanding
at UBC. This research centres on law and
how it shapes and is shaped by the social
and political context in which it operates.
Projects are focused on the Canadian
Charter and constitutional rights and how
they are used in advancing the interests of
women, minorities, gays and lesbians and
people with disabilities.
Other socio-legal projects focus on
race, gender and the law, and how legal
institutions reproduce structures of
racism, particularly with First Nations
women. Even more research is carried out
in commercial, corporate and labour law.
The faculty is a good example of the
work being done across the university:
men and women are using the insights
and methodology of many disciplines to
investigate the nature of the world and to
seek out ways of improving it. *
Chris Petty
continued from page 17
Because women are often dependent on
their husbands economically, she may be
uncomfortable bringing criminal charges.
"As a tool, the law is only part of the
answer to that problem," says Mosoff.
She cautions against assuming that
because 50 per cent of law students are
women, they are all creating social change
or that they will even remain in the legal
profession long enough to become
influential. A 1991 report by a subcommittee of the Law Society of British Columbia
confirmed that there are problems for
women in the legal profession. Dean Smith
was one of the members of this subcommittee on Women in the Legal Profession.
The report said that although almost half
of BC's law grads in the last 10 years were
women, the rate at which women leave the
profession is 50 percent higher than that
of men. The reasons for this are complex
and varied. Women in private practice are
usually paid less than men called to the
bar in the same year, and women are often
passed over for promotions. As well, many
law firms are run by men who establish
particular "career-path" atmospheres in
the office and make little provision for
those who wish to take unpaid leave or
whose non-work responsibilities (family or
otherwise) make the 70 hour work week
unacceptable.
Dean Smith's work on this particular
committee has made a difference for UBC
women faculty in ways that may not even
be noticed. Judy Mosoff offered an
anecdote to illustrate the point.
When she joined the faculty in
September 1991, she was invited to the
dean's beginning of the year party, but
phoned the dean's office to give her
regrets because she was unable to find a
babysitter for her two young children.
Dean Smith called back to suggest
that perhaps her own two teenagers might
want to babysit Mosoff's children.
"Now that's not the kind of thing that
is usually the job of a dean," says Mosoff.
The influence of women in the UBC
Faculty of Law is strong, and although it
may seem to be a bit of a quiet revolution
at the moment, it's undeniably here to
stay. *

First Nations Law Program
Of the more than 700 men and women enroled in the Faculty of Law, forty-eight are
First Nations students. This is among the highest representation of First Nations students in law schools across Canada.
The First Nations Law program began in 1975 after a Supreme Court of Canada case
established native people's legal rights, and as a result of this case, several Canadian
universities started native law programs. In spite of this, there are still fewer than 200
native law graduates in Canada, and most of those have graduated in the last five years.
But the numbers at UBC's law school will continue to grow if John Borrows and
others who support the program have their way.
Borrows is the new director of the native law program. He and other UBC professors
like Doug Sanders, Michael Jackson and others, all well known for their work in issues
affecting aboriginal people, are working hard to build the program.
Borrows says when the UBC native law program began it attracted mostly community leaders from native bands. The program trained these leaders to apply their extensive knowledge and experience to modern concepts of law and jurisprudence. Now, as
the program develops, it is
attracting younger people who
have undergraduate degrees and
others across the spectrum of
First Nations peoples. But, he
says, "I hope that [students with
undergrad degrees] don't
overwhelm those who have
experience and leadership in
their community. They have a lot
to bring, but don't have the
same academic background. As
director, I'm trying to preserve
that diversity."
The current Canada-wide
awareness of native issues is
reflected in the law school.
Borrows points out that the
Native Peoples and the Law class
is made up of two-thirds non-
Native students.
Some of that awareness
may have come from the move,
among many provinces, to
provide for aboriginal self-
government, and from the
attempt to entrench that right in
the Canadian constitution
through the Charlottetown
Accord. Many provinces are
John Borrows, director of the UBC First Nations Law       determined to continue working
Program. with native leaders toward self-
government.
Second-year native student Gloria
Morgan says, "Self-government should be
a major part of all of our courses. I think
everyone in the program is studying in
order to create self-government. Self-
government is almost every aspect of
living — it's not just political structure."
"It's not just pie-in-the-sky any more,"
adds third-year student Bernard Kerrigan.
"It's actually coining. When we graduate
we will be prepared to offer advice on
exactly what's going to be happening."
That responsibility does weigh heavily at
times, they say, but both are full of
enthusiasm and a passion for native
issues.
"I'm not here to become a lawyer and
move downtown," Morgan says. "Ultimately, most of us are going to work for
our people in some respect, whether it's as
a lawyer or in some other way."
Borrows also wants to be sensitive to
native students who aren't particularly
interested in native issues, and make sure
their needs are served.
"I want the law school experience to
be relevant and meet the students'
objectives, whether or not those objectives
are First Nations-oriented."
Some native law programs segregate
native issues, restricting them to native
law classes. At UBC, however, the First
Nations perspective is included in some
law school courses, and Borrows would
like to see this practice expanded. For
instance, property law, contract law and
family law naturally lend themselves to
First Nations perspectives. Borrows will
also work on updating existing native law
courses and will introduce new native law
courses when appropriate.
Borrows has a BA, LLB and LLM from
the University of Toronto, and is currently
working on his DJur. At U of T he organized seminars, activities and support
groups for students, so the administrative
side of academic life is familiar. In addition to administering the program here, he
teaches and pursues research as an
assistant professor. He is an Ojibwa and
member of the Chippewa Nawash First
Nation. *

Hot and Bothered: Men and Women,
Sex and Love in the 90s by Wendy
Dennis (Key Porter Books, $26.95, hard
cover) is one of the funniest books I have
ever read. I laughed aloud, I snorted, and
perfect strangers in the library gave me
reproving looks. The tone is relaxed and
perfect: Dennis is your best friend telling
you raunchy stories. What I found the
most interesting is Dennis' analysis of
how the feminist revolution has changed
relationships between the sexes during
the last 30 years. She says, "I came to
realize how much the unspoken but lethal
nuances of sexual politics have become
distancing mechanisms ... and I observed
how oppressively they are keeping men
and women from finding each other,
falling in love and galloping off into the
sunset together." I know, that as a
feminist, it made me examine a number
of my own assumptions and realize that I
have been guilty of hostility toward men
in general, leaving out the ones I love as
exceptions.
Hot and Bothered says tough things
about women and comments equally
unflinchingly about men, but kindness is
really what we're pointed toward. Dennis
dares to mention good manners, and
most startling of all, morality. If you have
even the mildest curiosity as to why
things aren't as simple as they used to
be between the sexes, read this, wince,
and laugh.
Stupid Crimes by Dennis E. Bolen
MFA'89 (Anvil Press, $10.95, paper) is
endearing, full of foul-mouthed characters,
and a great read. Bolen, like his protagonist, Barry Delta, is a parole officer. He
writes from the inside about petty
criminals and their foolish, horrifying, and
sometimes very funny run-ins with the
law. No matter how stupid and inept his
parolees, the author allows them to keep
their dignity.    Honest and compassionate,
Bolen pushes his writing far beyond the
tawdriness of 7-Elevens and murder. In
literary terms, he takes chances and
makes them work. This is a beautifully
crafted book.
The dialogue sizzles. Set in Vancouver, this is an underworld Bolen knows
intimately. I kept picking it up and losing
myself for half an hour, emerging laughing, shaking my head or both. I learned
more than I wanted to about jail.
The book itself has a loose, episodic
format: Delta and his love life, a whole
galaxy of parolees who recur in crime
after crime, who end up in one another's
stories. I loved the strange short insertions, headed with titles like "One Thing
That Angers Barry Delta Is Having To Fit
Into the Cracks," and "Barry Delta Knows
That This Is Not a Dangerous Job." The
one quibble I had with the whole book
was why Wayne, the Rummy Bandit,
doesn't cut someone from jail in on
where he's hidden his stash.
Stupid Crimes has been optioned by
the William Morris Agency in LA and the
rumour is that Harrison Ford will be the
leading man. (I told you Bolen was good!)
20       UBC Alumni Chronicle, Spring 1993 BOOKS
Exploring Vancouver: The Essential
Architectural Guide by Harold Kalman,
Ron Phillips and Robin Ward (UBC Press)
is another in a series of indispensable
books on Vancouver issued recently by
UBC Press. Armed with this book, last
season's Trees of Vancouver and Vancouver and its Region, Vanophiles have
an impressive arsenal of reference for
discovering one of the most beautiful
spots on earth.
Naturally beautiful, yes. But
architecturaly? Eaton's Pacific Centre
building, the garish glass and concrete
monsters built downtown in the '70s and
a propensity to tear down anything old
regardless of its value, have given Vancouver a reputation for bad architecture
(the Marine Building notwithstanding) and
bad city planning.
This book shows that Vancouver has
enough commercial, public and residential
diversity to please the most critical eye,
and enough remaining wood and mortar
history to satisfy anyone looking for the
city's urban identity.
It's surprising how many of the 534
entries in this book are familiar. All are
photographed with a style and flair
appropriate to the subject, and the
comments on each are thoughtful,
informative and properly judgemental.
Vancouver's architectural delights are
often ignored when put up against the
magnificent backdrop of mountains and
sea. But they are there. This book does
them justice. Chris Petty
The Anatomy of Gender: Women's
Struggle for the Body, edited by   UBC
professors Dawn H. Currie and Valerie
Raoul (Oxford University Press, $19.95,
paper) is a collection of seventeen papers
given at a Women's Studies conference at
UBC. Reading it is like taking a brisk
swim in chilly water; the first while nearly
kills you, then you start enjoying yourself.
And ah! how virtuous and alive you feel
afterward, having gone through the shock
and the glow. The book covers a fascinating subject, "cultural representation and
the physical treatment of women." The
problem, for me, is the language that's
used.
Every academic discipline has its own
jargon, and, unfortunately, Women's
Studies is no exception. It is not that
these authors don't know how to write,
either. Winnie Tomm's essay in The
Anatomy of Gender on developing new
ways of knowing is a good example. At
one point Tomm says, "In many ways, life
is largely a conversation; we contribute to
the perceived nature of reality through
the conversations we have." Brilliant,
lucid, simple. I had my tongue hanging
out for more, but that was it. It was as
though the writer was embarrassed
people could understand her.
The foreword points out, "A central
tenet of western culture is the importance
of subordinating the feminine principle to
the masculine for the sake of human
progress." The unruly feminine is associated with nature and the body, and must
be brought into line by the cool blaze of
masculine rationality. The foreword also
brings us up to date on the positions
well-known feminists such as Germaine
Greer, Simone de Beauvoir, Shulamith
Firestone, and Adrienne Rich, among
others, have taken about having children:
does having children victimize or valorize
women?   Sometimes I had to reread a
paragraph three times.
The papers themselves range greatly
in style and content from the accessible
"Pornography or Misogyny? Fear and the
Absurd" to the icily witty "l-less and Gaga
in the West Edmonton Mall..." The first
two sections, with the exception of Black
Women's Reality and Feminism..." were
the most readable for me; they didn't
allow the language to overwhelm the
content. "Images of Women in Canadian
Social Policy: Em-bodying Patriarchy"
brought the writing into the realm of the
practical: how does this stuff affect you
and me?
A book like this is important because
it opens our thinking to see that what we
thought was carved in stone (PMS, for
instance) is a fluid concept. Instead,
"representations of the female body do
not simply reflect the 'Truth' of sexual
difference but instead reflect political
processes controlled historically by men."
This book is intensely relevant to women's lives, and worth a plunge.*

Alumni    Profile
Tan   Yam    Pin,    MBA'65
CEO, Tiger Brewery, Singapore
• Born in Singapore, 1941
• Attended English mission school in Singapore, then went to the
National University of Singapore where he completed a BA.
• In his second year, an educational aid program began between
UBC and NUS to establish a business school. Tarn was selected
to go to UBC to complete an MBA.
■ He finished his MBA in 1965, then returned to NUS to teach in
the economics department. He taught for three years.
He went back to Canada in the early '70s to complete his CA
because he felt he must be a professional accountant to teach
effectively. Returned to Singapore and taught one more year.
■ Quit teaching and joined Cold Storage (a large British food
chain) as finance manager. Moved up in the firm to become
general manager. Stayed with Cold Storage 10 years.
• Joined Tiger (then Malayan Brewery) Brewery in 1 982 as general
manager and oversaw the development of Tiger as one of the
largest breweries in Asia.
• First impression of UBC was that it was very different from
Singapore. Singapore in the early '60s was very poor and
underdeveloped, and Vancouver was green, cool and doing well.
He thought the climate was nice for sleeping, but not much else.
• Stayed at Okanagan House at UBC. Some students had difficulty
with the food, but he did not. When too much macaroni and
cheese was served, however, he went to Chinatown. He often
cooked food at  International House for his homesick friends.
■ He found the professors to be excellent. Professor Mitchell was
particularly good, as was Professor Berg, both of whom he
contacts when he is in Vancouver.
• His son is at UBC. Mr. Tan knew the quality of UBC's courses to
be very high, and was happy to send his son here.
• He sees UBC as a pioneer institution, and that David Strangway
has UBC on the right track. "UBC's a great school."
■ The biggest challenge in his life was to attain the same level of
achievement in the business world as he did in academia. In the
business world, brain power doesn't count unless a person can
produce results.

Peter  Jepson
Young
BSc'79, MD'85
Peter Jepson-Young died on November
15, 1992 in Vancouver at the age of 35.
He became familiar through his weekly
AIDS Diary on CBC television as Dr. Peter. With his forthrightness and honesty, he educated us every step of
the way, almost to the door of his own death, about AIDS; but he also
taught us about life, acceptance and beauty. His colleague, Dr. Jay
Wortman, said, "You forgot about him as being gay or as a doctor. You
forgot about the stigma of the disease and you related to him as a human being." At the time of his death, he had been nominated for the
Order of British Columbia and the Order of Canada, and was being featured on a special segment of CBC's Man Alive. He chose the grounds
of St. Peter's Quamichan Anglican Church on Vancouver Island as his
burial place. He will be sadly missed by his family and loved ones, and
by those he touched. Photo courtesy of The Vancouver Sun.

The Editor's View
Everything evolves, even universities
and magazines.
Frank Wesbrook, UBC's first president, said that UBC's mission was to serve
all the needs of all the people. And it did. Up
until the middle 1960s, if you wanted any
sort of post secondary education in BC, you
came here. Now, UBC is part of a wide
network of universities, colleges and
institutes that deliver service to various
sectors ofthe populace. The university for
"all the people," while still serving a broad
base, has become a specialist.
Reviewing past eras in this magazine's history, I found that it, too, changed
to suit the times.
After periods of serving various
interests, our focus is turning back on the
university. UBC has become one of the
leading research establishments in Canada.
At the same time, our faculties are putting
greater emphasis on teaching and delivering
first class service to the community. The
Chronicle has instituted a policy of looking
more closely at these developments in our
faculties. We will be featuring articles on one
or two faculties per issue (see our articles on
the Faculty of Law beginning page 16), and
will give you short news items of interest on
as many faculties as we can in our limited
space.
This doesn't mean we will stop our
other regular features or articles of general
interest (see The Left Hand of Research,
page 12). Our top priority is still to keep you
in touch with UBC. Write and tell us how
we're doing.
